Dell Model Benchmarks

ECN's User and Desktop Services (UDS) group is occasionally asked to compare the performance of various desktop computer models used by faculty and staff to help determine whether it's time to purchase a new desktop PC and/or to discern whether an optional processor upgrade in a new PC is worth the extra cost. Benchmark scores for select Dell desktops in the table below provide numeric values for easy comparison of models.

Although the scores are based on replicable tests, no benchmark methodology is perfect. If you use one of these computer models, note that your computer's operating system, the quantity of memory installed, and other hardware components might differ, so your PC might achieve higher or lower scores. Please think of these scores as an approximate comparison of potential system performance.

Note that scores in this table only should only be compared vertically; that is, compare PassMark scores only with other PassMark scores ... or Geekbench scores only with other Geekbench scores. PassMark and Geekbench use different methods to calculate their scores.
